I am wondering what the variable MANINSTALL is, where it comes from and 
why we should keep it in pkgsrc.

Most programs ignore this variable anyway, and I doubt there are many 
pkgsrc users actually knowing that they can set this variable.

I'd like to get rid of the extra complexity this variable brings, unless 
someone can persuade me that we really need it.
